today my boy has finally been castrated, all went well, he acted perfectly, he was able to go outside (vet agreed) within a 15mins after the snip as he was alert and eager to go outside, which these days is better than staying in doors after wards.

seems weird but it almost feels like a a big step, new chapter from here...

god knows what he will be like in 6 weeks as so laid back as it is, he already acts like a gelding, that remind me of a a old saying but i cant quite remember it something about a good stallion is a great gelding etc.. if anyone remembers it plz feel free to stick it on Very Happy .

things didnt go so well!!!!

today had to call the vet out, his sheth over night had become so swollen its was eye watering and was leaking fluid yuk!

so vet had to sedate him again have a feel to see if a problem could be found a good wash, re-opened a little to increase size not because closing to early to help with draining. its just one of those things.

now on anti-biotics and anti-inflammatory.

poor little mite.

Kay that is more common that you might think. Every horse that I have had gelded has suffered the same thing. He will soon recover so try not to worry.x

already looking better, he has even managed to trot around so feeling so much better, med's must be working Very Happy . though it does show how good natured he is with all the pain/discomfort and he still comes over to me with a call and always ears forward, and standing calmly when i handle him though i do feel mean for putting him through it in the first place.

ppp im sure your lad will be fine, trooper was just unlucky.
